Nevine El-Aref reported in Ahram Online (18.09.2018) about the finding of a Late Period sandstone sarcophagus near the Agha Khan Mausoleum in Aswan:

" A Sarcophagus With A Mummy Uncovered In Late Period Tomb In Egypt's Aswan ".

The mummy found inside the sarcophagus is wrapped in linen bandages. Its state of preservation is called very good:

" The Identity Of This Remarkably Well-Preserved Egyptian Mummy Remains A Mystery "
Quote:
Archaeologists have discovered several ancient Egyptian mummies - including the remains of a remarkably well-preserved individual - in a tomb along the west bank of the Nile River, the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities said in a statement released today.

The 2,500-year-old tomb - located in Aswan, southern Egypt - was probably used as a communal burial, Abdel Moneim Saeed, director of Aswan and Nubia antiquities at the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, said in the statement. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
